Cape Town - Western Province are marginal favourites to win this year's Absa Currie Cup title - if bookmakers are to be believed.

This year's playoffs promise to be a tightly contested affair, with little separating the likely four teams - WP, Golden Lions, Sharks and Blue Bulls - to contest the semi-finals.

Leading SA bookmakers BetFlash have table-toppers WP at 29/20, followed by the Golden Lions and Sharks both at 5/2, with the Blue Bulls at 9/2.

The Free State Cheetahs stand an outside chance of making the playoffs, but will require a number of results to go their way in this weekend's final round of matches.

The 2014 Currie Cup final is scheduled for Saturday, October 25.

This weekends fixtures:

Friday, October 10
Eastern Province Kings v Pumas, Port Elizabeth - 19:10

Saturday, October 11
Golden Lions v Free State Cheetahs, Johannesburg - 15:00
Western Province v Sharks, Cape Town - 17:05
Blue Bulls v Griquas, Pretoria - 19:10
